So Jim Zorn came out at the league meetings and publicly proclaimed Jason Campbell as the starter, adding that the Redskins have no plans to pursue Jay Cutler . I think it’s ridiculous that Zorn even has to answer this question. While any team would love to get Cutler, we simply don’t have the ammunition to compete with the likes of the Jets and Buccaneers. Seriously, we would have to trade #13, Jason Campbell, and next year’s #1 to Denver to pull this off. We simply have way too many pressing needs (RT/linebacker) to not use a selection. Plus, more and more people around the league seem to think Denver won’t be trading him anyway.
While I do think Jason Campbell can become a solid, manage-the-game QB, I think for our team to have real, long-term success there is a better answer at the QB spot. And I’ll be blogging about that in a few days…
